[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: good evening, i'm john fugelsang. this is "viewpoint." thank you for spending your martin luther king jr. holiday with us. president obama marked his second inauguration at president with a speech that was less lofty and a lot of more lefty than his first time around. after taking the oath of office from chief justice john roberts mr. obama outlined a wish-list of progressive policies and programs for the next four years and called for collective action to put them in practice. >> obama: now more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one

about here, which is the political leverage that boehner wants right now. i think boehner needs to reassess. i think this is a retreat. give it to the senate for a while. let's get our troops back together and figure out what is going on here and then move forward again. i do agree with some the people who say this is a surrender because i think it's a political surrender for a moment. there is always strategy within the republican party. i don't think this is the kind of situation that will just go away. it is always kicking the can down, but i think there is a political play here. >> cenk: i don't see it at all. you let me explain. people use it as an excuse. you think the house republicans are going to get any more popular between now and march march 1st? >> that's not what i'm saying. they're going to give it to the senate. let the senate come up with their budget. we're exacerbated. yes, i have a fractureed caucus in the house. i have to work on my caucus and then get stronger. it doesn't matter if its kicked down the road a bit because we have to come back in the party. it
to go to the house, but it still might have a chance if boehner can get his caucus on board. and john boehner released a statement saying . . . but learning about the issue is not on the agenda for the truly rabid right. of course roll out rush limbaugh, here he is speaking for that wing of the republican party. >> i don't know that there's any stopping this. i -- i mean -- it's up to me and fox news and i don't think fox news is that invested in this. i don't think there's any republican opposition to this of any majority consequence or size. >> jennifer: except for maybe rush. joining me via skype is matt baretto, and we're by clarissa martinez de castro. she is the director of civic engagement and immigration at the national council of la raza. thank you both so much for being here. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> jennifer: you bet. let me start with you clarissa what i'm -- i'm curious about the psychology what was the status for having the president back off of his own proposal and instead support the senator's proposal. >> first of all the president is still goi
more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think enough democrats would have switched over and voted yes. i think they were just trying to make a point. >> john: that makes me feel better. but let me ask you something the number one criticism from my republican friends has been so budget has been passed. why can't you democrats pass a budget how shameful. how should democrats respond to this? >> well, it is true that they haven't passed a budget. you can say that matters or it doesn't matter that much because they operate these days on the continuous resolutions so on and so forth. it does put a little bit of pressure on the senate democrats to do this. but of course this is another thing where you can just just--nothing is written in concrete. you can pass a budget that says we are going to ha
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r

ability, is trying to look out for us. >> i'm pleased speaker boehner has decided to change course and pass the bill that over the debt ceiling. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >> bill: 13 minutes before the top of the hour on the "full court press" here this thursday morning. when we come -- in the top of the next hour rather, we'll be joined by lynn sweet from the "chicago sun times" as a "friend of bill." for the whole hour. and then former senator tom daschle will be joining us at the top of the hour. the house of representatives yesterday voted overwhelmingly to lift the debt ceiling and to do so not for -- final vote was 285-144. to do so through mid may. they dropped their demands for deep spending cuts in social security and medicare as a price for raising the debt ceiling. so what is this all about? where do we go from here? michael is the finance writer for yahoo news. joining us on our news line this morning. good to have you with us. >> good morning, bill. >> bill: first of all what caused this course correction or this change of course i should say maybe f
completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe, wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversatio
obama not to tear up. >> jennifer: or john boehner for pete's sake. >> right. and it is heard breaking and our leaders are human beings, and i think it's awesome that we recognize them as human beings, and it's those human reactions that make me feel good about the fact that the decisions they make will be guided by both the brain, and the heart, the right way to do it. >> jennifer: yeah, you are exactly right about that. you put it so well. >> i think for her -- i think -- >> jennifer: go ahead. >> i was just going to say -- i -- i don't think anybody thinks hillary clinton is weak. so i think when you have a human moment like that it doesn't take away from her standing in our world at all. >> jennifer: i agree. the other person who is sort of a heart-centered person in the administration is joe biden. >> yeah. >> jennifer: and they are both -- joe and hilary very close and of course potentially competitors in a 2016 run. do you think that would actually happen? would one of them step back for the other? because they are very dear friends? >> here is the one thing
i think he's getting played. he says in an interview oh, boehner can't do the deal because of the caucus. no they're playing you good cop-bad cop. >> that's what i'm saying. also the media is a cover up of what the real problem is. the real reason why politicians don't make real change, that's the corporate money. in reality it's all about the money. >> cenk: binebingo. the corporate money goes to the media and the politicians. that's who is calling the shots both at fox news and the republican party. that's why they work in unison. let me end on a fun topic. scott brown. scott brown might run for senate. he's leading in the polls. and if they have that contest in markos moulitsas, senator kerry went over to the state department. so he's tweeting about this over the weekend and he's saying about his possible run. like he's getting ready to make an announcement. he then people give him grief, as they usually do on twitter. then i says, whatever, michael whatever, bud. then the third one. whatever. i think there was a song about this. then people think he's drunk tweeting bec

boehner said yesterday. but the virginia state republicans who pulled the real shady move yesterday. the senate is split evenly between democrats and republicans, 20 apiece. but the republicans held a one-vote advantage. so they passed a redistricting amending that makes two republican seats more secure. the republican governor bob mcdonell has not yet indicated what he will do if that bill reaches his desk. we will be back with more show after the break. stay with us. ♪ commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

. >> stephanie: yeah, and boehner called his own bluff he said never going to raise it without equal pay cut, and basically he went back on that, and as you said, all he did was kick it down the road for three months. what was the point for him? >> the point was to look like they had some kind of a win because they knew they were in trouble on the debt ceiling, and then put the pressure on somebody else, namely the senate. but they are going to put forth a budget pretty soon that is really going to be an important % contrast for the american people to see. they are going to try to balance the budget in ten years, which you cannot do without slashing medicare and medicaid, and social security. so the american people will get, i think, a very good look at the way republicans want to balance the budget and do deficit reduction and the way democrats do. we actually went through this with paul ryan's budget which was so egregious the leader of his party had to back away from it in the campaign. >> stephanie: yeah, it was seen as sort of a slap at the senate but they are calli
but then the house took recess and did nothing. house speaker john boehner called a vote under pressure. once congress reconvened the first week in january first they approved the $9 billion then the additional $50 billion two weeks later. the vote in the senate is on the remaining plus $50 billion. we're back after the break. stay with us. armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.

the church respond? if political catholic leaders like speaker of the house john boehner, follow the nra's line on gun control and not the moral teachings of their own church. >> well, it is a bit shocking because the conscience, how they can do that. i think one of the things we're seeing is that there is a strong element of fear in our society that generates this idea that people need weapons to protect themselves from others or from the government. and that is this fear that is eroding our capacity to have a democratic government. so we believe at network, if we work on the aspects of fear, where we break down fear by getting to know our neighbors by knowing that we're in this together, that really by exercising what jesus says about coming together, about two or three being gathered together, about all of us sharing the resources that we have, that if we come together in community fear will be lessened and in lessening fear then, we lessen the desire to use these weapons that are so horrific. >> john: sister, how dare you be so unpatriotic and talk about faith. the u.s. conference of
disfunction of the senate. mcconnell is over the hook. ensi gn paul says i never thought when john boehner told harry reid to go f himself that he actually would. he tweeted that to us at bt show show. between us your comments there. >> this is the difference betweencrats and republicans. okay? when republicans have power, to their credit, they ram through their agenda. look at george bush. won the presidency, rammed through those bush tax cuts in march of his first year in. democrats get power, and they are free to use it. this time, we democrats won the white house. we picked up what? three seats or whatever it was in the senate, held on to the senate and picked up, up to 55 votes in the senate and picked up -- didn't win the house but won eight new seats in the house of representatives. so democrats have the power today. this was the best moment, the best opportunity we will ever have to do something important for this nation in order to get things done no matter which party is in charge and go aheadet rid of the filibuster or at least fix it so that it
john boehner has when it comes to his own troops. this is an issue that you are going to be seeing some bi-partisan support already on, and the big question is: how does the white house play into this congressional proposal this gang compromise on immigration reform am? but there is clearly plenty of room for bi-partisan. it's the first time in a long time we have talked about republicans and democrats agreeing on something pretty big. i think there is a lot of political momentum here gun control -- >> bill: i think we will have to wait for gun control to next time we look at you, here looking at the clock. >> fair way of putting it. i am not optimistic we are going to see more gun control >> bill: that's more of an uphill battle. thanks, my friend. josh kraushaart editor of the national journal "hotline". >> this is "the bill press show."

-- this was a direct challenge to people like paul ryan and john boehner and mitch mcconnell. he said yeah, you guys want to sit around, you know, and look at your navals and have this on-going debate about what the role of government and he said that's not -- we can have that little debate but that's no substitute for action. >> obama: progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> bill: that's it. that was it. that's what that -- address yesterday, i started to call a sermon really was. was all about. the president says that is our role. that's what we believe. if we really believe in the constitution, then he went on, we'll talk more about this. we've got to do something. about poverty. we have to do something about the disadvantaged. we have to do something about seniors and social security and medicare and medicaid. we've got to do something about gay rights. the first time any president's ever mentioned that. he came out and said if we really believe in that constitution, we shouldn't be deba
